Asteroidea is looking out of this world

ASTEROIDEA was too bad to be true on her reappearance at Catterick so is worth another chance in the Marshall Glover Transport Solicitors Handicap at Beverley.

Trained by Pam Sly, she is out of her Guineas winner Speciosa and a daughter of the brilliant Sea The Stars so is bred to be a fair bit better than her mark of 83.

She began to make quick progress last season and was expected to pick up where she left off at Catterick but folded very tamely once headed.

However, there was a bit of cut in the ground that day and while Speciosa could handle the soft, Sea The Stars detested it and it just may be that she takes after her father on that front.

The going will be much quicker on the Westwood and she may have just needed a run to blow away the cobwebs.

The veteran SUNNY FUTURE has only ever won at two courses but thankfully one of those is Bath so he looks of interest in the Engineered Water Systems Handicap. Trained by Malcolm Saunders, the nine-year-old has three wins at the venue as he loves quick ground.

He is back up to a mark of 76 having won on his final outing last season and while this trip looks short of his best, none of his rivals are in peak form.

ROCK HEROINE holds solid claims when she makes her handicap debut at Southwell.

Trained by Hughie Morrison, the grey daughter of Rock Of Gibraltar did not show a great deal in three maidens.

That said, there was a little to like about her recent spin at Wolverhampton on April 2 when she finished third behind Sugar Boy over seven furlongs.

With the step up to a mile for the Bet toteplacepot Handicap almost certain to suit, Rock Heroine could be let in very lightly off an inaugural mark of 57.

FILBERT is a good horse when the mood suits and looks a tempting proposition in the Old Mout Cider Handicap Chase at Perth after a pleasing show at Ludlow.
